Event Highlights: 


"We need to simplify the tax code.  There's no reason a property tax has to be hard to understand. We need comprehensive tax reform."

 
- George Sweeting, New York City Independent Budget Office Deputy Director
 

"We should require property tax to be highlighted on a renter's bill. If renters became  aware of how much of their rent goes towards paying property taxes they may start demanding changes in the tax code."

 
- George Sweeting, New York City Independent Budget Office Deputy Director
